Venue: the Koninklijke Bibliotheek and the Nationaal Archief in The Hague

Technical drawings present specific challenges to conservators, conservation technicians, collection managers and curators as they are often produced in large quantities and poorly stored. They were treated with low regard as they were considered to be utilitarian objects. These collections therefore need attention, research and exchange of knowledge.

The symposium will feature identification training classes and presentations providing invaluable information on the following aspects: use and value, manufacture, methodology and survey, and conservation techniques.

Main speakers during this promising two-day symposium will be Eva Glück, Hildegard Homburger, Éléonore Kissel and Lois Olcott Price.
